Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli Thought Going to Trial Would Be "Reckless" at This Point

A little more than a year after pleading not guilty for their part in the college admissions scandal, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli decided to change their minds and pled guilty earlier this week. But why the change of heart? According to Us Weekly, the couple realized that the case against them was too strong.

A source shares with the outlet that “Lori and Mossimo felt going to trial would just be reckless…It was going to get ugly.” Plus, the insider says that Lori and Mossimo “were tired of being in limbo” and were concerned that “the kids’ lives were also being affected” (they were particularly worried about Bella and Olivia Jade having to testify against them in court). The source adds, “In the end, they had the choice of 50 years or a few months behind bars. You do the math.” And while that’s fair enough, it seems like Lori and Mossimo could have done “the math” between pleading guilty and pleading not guilty a year ago when this whole thing started—just saying!

So what’s going to happen now that Lori and Mossimo pled guilty? Well, Lori agreed to serve two months in prison, pay a $150,00 fine, serve 100 hours of community service, and serve two years of supervised release. Mossimo will likely have to serve more time in prison (he’s expected to be sentenced to five months), and he agreed to pay a $250,000 fine, serve 250 hours of community service, and also serve two years of supervised release. After that, this whole legal mess will be behind them.
